Or do I have to go through my list of 20 views and do the changes to each one at a time?

I am trying to add a list column to a document library. When I am running the application multiple times, the list column is also getting created multiple times. If the list column exist, i dont want to recreate the column, but only assign the value to that
This is the code i have used:
SPView curview = list.DefaultView;
SPViewFieldCollection fieldCol = curview.ViewFields;
if (!fieldCol.Exists("Custom Column"))
AddField("FilesCount", SPFieldType.Text, list.Fields);
fieldCol.View.DefaultView = true;
int mouas =5;
subFolder.Item["Custom Column"] = mouas;
private static SPField AddField(string title, SPFieldType type, SPFieldCollection fields)
fields.Add(title, type, false);
How to avoid the duplicate creation of column, and assign the value to column, if the column exists?
I found that if the newly created column name is having white spa
I need to list comma seperated values form one to column in multiple rows..ex:
I want the call_rec for each bug ID to be listed
I have an external content list - for my purposes, the data isn't any fancier than a list of terms provided by a web service (read only - I don't need update/delete functionality). I want to be able to link any subset of those terms to a single document
metadata column (in other words, I need it to work like a normal content list that is defined to allow multiple values in a column) but SharePoint doesn't let me do that on an ECL. I need the content list to be externally driven since more values are going
to be added to an outside system over time, but I think it's possible that I may not need a full-fledged ECL list to make this work this way in SharePoint.
Just to clarify: I don't need the metadata values in my documents to maintain a PERSISTENT link to the web service (if someone changes an underlying value in the web service DB, it doesn't need to be updated in the document table too). I just want SharePoint
to offer up an updated set of source values from the web service if somebody goes in and edits the document metadata.
Any ideas for how I can make this work?
This problem just started happening in my entire site collection. Anytime I associate a workflow to any list or doc lib the Workflow column that shows the status and links to the history is not beind added to the list or any views and is nowhere to
be found. Here's exactly what I'm doing:
1. Go the List settings -> workflow settings -> add a workflow (for this example the OOB approval workflow)
2. After adding I go to the List, the workflow column doesn't exist.
3. I go to "modify view", and the workflow column is not listed in the available columns.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
Playing with the BDC for the first time, running into some issues adding a Business Data column to a custom list.
I believe my ADF file is solid. I've been able to import that just fine and can use the application to drive various BDC-specific webparts (a Business Data List or Business Data Item, for example). It also seems to work when I manually enter information
in my NewForm.aspx field and click the Check Names button (it verifies my entry and underlines it, creates link to profile when I view the list data).
If I try to use the picker, I get nothing. Enter a name I know is valid or a % and click the magnifying glass icon and I very briefly get the "Please Wait" message, then just an empty set with "Type into the search box above then press "Enter" to start your
search" where my results should be.
Any pointers? Thanks.
How do I Configure BDC column to have multiple values selected and make multiple entities data available in the same column.ÃÂ Currently it supports only single value for an item.ÃÂ This requirement is crucial need some solution immediately.
We are creating a storage location for technical product articles. These will be SharePoint publishing pages. Each page will have metadata assigned to it to make it searchable by properties. The possible values for one of the columns (Part Number) could potentially be sourced by our ERP system. I'd like to do this to eliminate the possibility of free-text entry errors, but there are probably over 10,000 parts so a drop-down list isn't feasible.
The end user enters the part number and clicks a button to verify it against a BDC entry from our ERP system. If they weren't sure on the part number they needed, they could do a lookup from that metadata entry screen. They'd need to have the option to add multiple part numbers as one technical product article could reference multiple part numbers.
Is BDC an option for all of this or am I looking atÃÂ a custom metadata solution? I thought I heard along the way that BDC only supported one value choice, but I couldn't find a verification for that in the forums.
I have a multiple text box in a list

We have a list with versioning enabled. When an item is edited a new version is created for the particular item.
Is it possible to create a view to list only a particular version of items and data in that version?
I have a data view web part which displays a list column that allows multiple items to be selected from another list. So in this column (in the actual list), the content in a particular cell is as follows:
6698; 1211; 3342; 1231; 1231
However, when I insert this field into the DVWP, the content above ends up losing all the spaces and so looks like this:
I am not sure why this is happening, and plus some of the entries in this column are made up of a very long string of numbers. Even if I control the width of the column, this long list only ever gets displayed on one line (i.e. width restriction is
ignored), therefore my page is being displayed very wide. I think this is happening because of the lack of spaces in the string, but am not sure.
Does anyone know what is going on here?
Thanks for taking time to read.
